Lyric

Phil:    My name’s Phil and I live next door.
           What do I do? I’m a jobbing plumber.
           I’m the man for your frozen pipes
           Or when your drain blocks in the summer.
           Take my card. You never know.
           Remind me of your name again.

Gary:  My name’s Gary. Yes, I live around here.
           What do I do? I’m a Fingerprint Expert.
           It’s a strange job, why, just this week
           I’m dusting buttocks for the prints of a pervert.
           No, the man is still at large.
           Remind me of your name again.

Chorus:     So tell me how is it you know Amanda?
                  Doesn’t she have such a lovely place here?
                  We somehow thought that the place would be grander,
                  But so convenient. The school is so near.

Anne:  My name’s Anne. No, I live in Leeds.
           What do I do? I’m a tax inspector.
           I check accounts for anomalies.
           Often firms in the private sector
           Pay their cleaners from petty cash.
           Remind me of your name again.

Gary:  My name’s Gary, just in from L.A.
           What do I do? I’m Stunt-Double Actor.
           It’s a strange job, why, just this week
           I’m Keanu Reeves getting hit by a tractor.
           No, he’s shorter than you’d think.
           Remind me of your name again.

Chorus:     Chorus

Lynn:  My name’s Lynn and I live nearby.
           What do I do? I work in a bank.
           But I’m on sick leave since the stressful day
           When a robber walked in and fired a blank.
           It was just a starting gun.
           Remind me of your name again.

Gary:  My name’s Gazza. No, I live in Auz.
           What do I do? I’m a Crocodile Wrangler.
           It’s a strange job, why, just last month
           One caught in shark-net - I had to untangle her.
           No, I try to bite them first.
           Remind me of your name again.

Chorus:     Thank you. You’re kind to invite us, Amanda.
                 Haven’t you got such a lovely place here?
                 As we have work to be up for tomorrow
                 We’ll say good night now and we’ll disappear.
                 ... We'll disappear.
Sam:         ... I'll disappear.
